Multi-Wheeler info request

I have some birthday money which needs to be converted into a unicycle.

Since I have just about everything I need, the logical search area was
‘things I don’t really need.’ My first impulse is to get a multi-wheel
uni. Checking the Unicycle.com site, I see that the only one for sale is
the Semcycle with extentions. I’ve heard poor reviews on this model.
Anyone know if there are others available? Has the Sem version been
updated and improved? Is there some info which can make this affordable
uni work better (like, inflate the tires A LOT)?

Thanks

Also – do the Sem extensions work ok with the Primo tire instead of thinner, lower-pressure ones?

You asked many questions on which I cannot comment. Just this: my
daughter used to ride a Semcycle two-wheeler (at the uni club). The
wheels were not perfectly aligned and tended to run off each other. To
remedy this (somewhat), a Semcycle engineer inflated only the bottom
tyre a lot. That’s the one that carries load. The top tyre was a lot
softer so that (a) it could fold around the bottom tyre, and (b) the
top tyre could deform so that it’s run-off tendency could be
compensated before it was off completely. I hope this makes sense.

DM and Pichler both make good quality multi-wheelers - don’t know
how useful that will be to you Leftpondians though.

Good selection of multi wheelers here:

Sofa – Those are unis with training wheels… I think he meant a vertical orientation!
